Honorable Mention:

2019 Easton Project 3 Alpha XL BBCOR Baseball Bat (BB19ALX)

Unlike the Project 3 ADV mentioned earlier on the list, this one-piece alloy bat is pretty much only going to be recommended for use by power hitters. Often times, that would cause a model to be left off a “Most Popular” list. However, the Alpha XL has optimized barrel control and will very likely be a top choice by many power hitters across the game. One-piece alloy bats will be more affordable because they cost less to manufacture. Don’t let the price tag fool you though, the Alpha XL will mash with the new Carbon Core technology and thinner barrel walls. Prominent features include:

Easton BBCOR

  • VRSCOR Handle Insert Creates A Solid Feel In The Hands
  • Optimal Barrel Design For Better Control
  • Speed Cap: More Flexible And Responsive Barrel & Natural Sound
